With Android and iOS ruling the smartphone community, there is very little left out there for other operating systems to actually flaunt what they can provide to users. Fortunately, some manufacturers have started incorporating Cyanogen OS into their devices which has been a fast growing attraction for many enthusiasts. The latest company to implement this OS is Lenovo and their device the Z1 is all set to hit Indian shores on the 10th of May.

We know that Cyanogen OS is basically based on Android but it brings along its very own tweaks that separate it from the “stock” version. The Z1, which was launched as the ZUK Z1 back in August is a powerful device with impressive features and specifications that has caught the attention of Indian users. In an event scheduled for the 10th of May at 12PM, the device will be unveiled officially to the country. This event will be the “World’s First Ever Crowd Sourced Phone Launch” as is mentioned on its Facebook page.


If you had missed out on the August release, here are some of the most impressive features that come with the Lenovo Z1:


  • Display –5 inch Full HD IPS at a resolution of 1920x1080p
  • CPU – Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset clocked at 2.5GHz
  • Memory – 3GB RAM with a 64GB internal storage capacity
  • OS – Cyanogen OS 12.1 (based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop) and upgradeable to Cyanogen OS 13 (based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow)
  • Camera – 13MP Primary with LED flash, OIS and Autofocus. 8MP Secondary with FHD video recording
  • Battery – 4100mAh with fast charging support and USB Type-C port.
  • Other – Fingerprint sensor, Dual SIM, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi Direct

Pricing has not been revealed yet for the Indian variant of the device, but we can wait another 6 days to know. The color that will be available in the country is dark grey. So, if you were in the process of buying a new smartphone, you might want to wait a week before making your decision. Given the specs, the Lenovo Z1 seems to be a powerful device. What do you think?
